The Chekhov-inspired comedy, directed by Drama Desk Award nominee and frequent Durang collaborator Nicholas Martin, follows Vanya (played by Tony Award-winner David Hyde Pierce) and his adopted sister Sonia (Obie-winner Kristine Nielsen) as they deal with a visit from their movie-star sister Masha (Academy Award-nominee Sigourney Weaver) and her new boyfriend Spike (Billy Magnussen), the unexpected appearance of a youthful visitor named Nina (Genevieve Angelson), and the disturbing visions of their prophetic cleaning woman (Shalita Grant).

Guests at the performance included Tony Award-winning actors Cherry Jones, Nathan Lane, and Andrea Martin, Tony nominee Victor Garber, Golden Boy cast member Michael Aronov, playwrights John Guare, Paul Rudnick, John Weidman, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood director Scott Ellis.

The production features sets by David Korins, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Justin Townsend, and original music and sound by Mark Bennett.
